Sacha Goldberger’s Joggers

Cre­ative and inter­est­ing project by pho­tog­ra­phy Sacha Goldberger.

Last sum­mer, Sacha Gold­berger decided he would take on a very inter­est­ing project. He assem­bled a team who helped him cre­ate an out­side stu­dio at Bois de Boulogne, a park located near Paris that’s 2.5 times the size of New York’s Cen­tral Park. He stopped jog­gers, ask­ing them for a favor — would they sprint for him and then pose right after for his cam­era? Many obliged. Out of breath, these jog­gers showed an over­whelm­ing amount of fatigue on their faces.

Gold­berger then asked these same peo­ple to come into his pro­fes­sional stu­dio exactly one week later. Using the same light, he asked them to pose the same way they had before.

I wanted to show the dif­fer­ence between our nat­ural and brute side ver­sus how we rep­re­sent our­selves to soci­ety,” Gold­berger tells us. “The dif­fer­ence was very surprising.”

Something For Your Third-Eye

Work­ing for “The Man” by stechico.

It was just inter­est­ing see­ing and think­ing about this after the first time I saw it. It led me to think about every­thing I/we absorb in our every­day lives from walk­ing on this green Earth. Whats true and false? Are we just a part of “The Matrix”? What would you do if you were given a choice to take the red or blue pill? Things to ponder.

You see, I’m not really a political-type. I guess its those days spent con­vers­ing with polit­i­cally minded peers and col­lege pro­fes­sors who had some­what a dif­fer­ent view on things in our Soci­ety. One thing is for sure though, we all should think for our­selves. Knowl­edge is FREE.

There is a lot to be learned from our world, as well as each other. You just got to keep your mind open. Well, I guess that’s one of Life’s great mys­ter­ies. We just have to find out one day at a time. May your jour­ney allow you to seek truths—starting with your own person.

PS. I LOVE ALL PEOPLE!
